    Hey all,

    Firstly I apologize if I'm posting this in the wrong area. Feel free to move the thread if so.

    Okay so I currently have a "tech" blog that I started a few years ago. Its originated from me making YouTube tutorials for Kodi (Kodi is a streaming program on PC). I basically made videos showing how to install the latest addons etc.. I then took these videos and posted them on my blog, into an article for better SEO. I also use the blog to post about anything relevant to streaming, iptv, phone apps etc.. The blog does alright, I get about 20k hits in traffic per month..

    Now a few weeks ago I received an email from an app development company completely out of the blue, they were offering me money to write up 2 articles promoting their 2 latest apps. Since my blog was totally related to the apps they wanted me to review, I had no problem doing this. It was the easiest money I'd ever made.. It took me less than 30 minutes to spin up a couple of articles talking up their apps.

    My question is.. Is there a "reliable" place online I can go to find more people who are willing to pay for articles to promote their products? Obviously I want to keep on the topic of my blog so it would have to be tech related products etc.. I don't want to fill my blog with sponsored content but I wouldn't mind doing a couple of articles every few months for some extra $$$..

    Any ideas?

    Cheers

    You could always search for app providers etc that might be needing a bit of promotion if they're selling their apps on the play store. You provide them with a detailed review on your site, link back to the Play Store account and they either pay you a commission on each sale, or a flat post rate.
